      I’m a total outsider, in that I have zero connection to the people who run this. So I know nothing, except as someone who goes almost every year, and who has walked a few times.

      It’s changed for the worse with all the corporate sponsorship. A lot of people don’t even go now, they just go to the faire-ground type thing afterward to buy their meat on a stick,
      T-shirts, and get a picture taken with a porn actor.

      Meh. Just thinking about it I have talked myself out of going this year. I got T-shirts, I’m a veggie, and I can see porn actors at my gym or favorite bar.

      I remember when being there was an act of pride, joy, and defiance and (in the 80′s) survivor status and a dedication to keep fighting. Now it’s a giant pitch for softdrinks and cellphone service.
